As part of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom’s celebration of the 19th Amendment, this free online presentation featuring Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner will explore important influences in the US women’s suffrage movement that are often forgotten.

While white women were the property of their husbands and considered dead in the law, traditional Iroquois women had more authority and status before Columbus than US women have today.
